A 33-year-old man was arrested Monday night after he allegedly stabbed another man to death in San Francisco’s South of Market neighborhood, according to police.
The stabbing was reported at 6:49 p.m. in the 400 block of Minna Street. A man in his 30s or 40s was found there suffering multiple stab wounds to his torso. Despite live-saving measures, he was pronounced dead there, police said.
The victim’s name has not been released pending notification of his family.
A suspect was seen leaving the area after the stabbing. At 11:55 p.m., officers patrolling the area of Fifth and Bryant streets saw a man matching the suspect’s description and detained him, police said.
Homicide investigators interviewed the man, identified as 33-year-old Antonio Taylor, and he was eventually booked into jail on suspicion of murder, possession of heroin and an outstanding traffic warrant, police said.
Anyone with information about the homicide is asked to call the Police Department’s anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444 or to send a tip by text message to TIP411 with “SFPD” in the message.
